How to Make Instagram's Web Search Work for You

Social media managers did a happy dance this morning when Instagram implemented search functionality for the web. A day in the life of a social media manager involves lots of multi-tasking between your mobile phone and laptop. When you’re working in Excel, responding to e-mails and checking Facebook pages, having to jump to another device can slow down productivity. Here are a few tips to make this new Instagram functionality do some work for you.

You Know Your Social Media Post Sucks If It Sounds Bad Out Loud

Here's how you can tell if you've written a bad post:

3 Brand Management Strategies That Should Have Failed

This post from +Percolate has so many good insights, e.g.:

"Marketing managers at PBR eventually realized that Portland, Oregon’s growing population of anti-establishment hipsters had taken to the beer. It became, through no deliberate action on the company’s part, a 'social protest' brand, one marketing consulting firm found. 'P.B.R. is seen as a symbol and fellow dissenter.'

"In light of this customer insight, the company began making the conscious choice to stay under the radar. That’s hard to do for marketers. But this understanding of customers’ need for an 'anti-brand' meant that the only way to nurture growth was to do it quietly."

What are Google+ Hashtags Good For Anymore?

"Search is still the cornerstone for Google's social media game. The more tools you have in your belt to get accurate information correctly in the right categories, the better. Hashtags are still very prominent as far as Trending is concerned on G+. I'm confident hashtags aren't going away anytime soon, but expect to see them downplayed even more than they are now on Google+."

How We Built an Addy Award-Winning Campaign for Swansons Nursery

Beat Your Competition with These 5 Social Media Insights

Anyone who manages social media day in and day out knows it can be a grind. There’s a lot of repetition, and a lot of waiting-to-see what works. Sometimes you want—or need—to mix things up.

There are a lot of places to draw inspiration from, but perhaps one of the most-effective (and least-expected) is your competition.

People hate Congress, but they mostly love their representatives

The joke all week has been how low Congress' polls are, but the thing people forget is that we don't elect Congress, we elect individual representatives. And the fact is, Americans, by and large, love their individual representatives, even if they hate all the others. 

Congress' poll numbers are a joke, but neither they nor the shutdown are likely to have any impact on the 2014 midterm elections.

WSJ: 'A person who commutes an hour each way has to make 40% more money to be as satisfied with life as a person who lives near the office'

One of the main reasons I live in the city is that no matter how much you make, you can't buy time. An extra hour or two at home each day is far more valuable than whatever perks I'd get (more square footage, a yard, etc.) living out in the suburbs.

YouTube Comments Will Now Be Powered By Google+

This is some huge news. The change will mean that comments are sorted by relevance (which is determined by how you behave on Google+):

"what makes a comment relevant? Three things: up-votes, the commenter’s community engagement and the commenter rep.

"In other words, the channel owner’s comments will be prioritized, and so will well known YouTube participants. As for the random guy or gal who always says “First” when watching a vid? Yah, they will quickly find themselves sinking to the bottom of the list. The same will be true for other spam, hate speech and simply comments that seem to have absolutely nothing to do with the video."
